I’ve been following Ayumi for a few years and I love her pairings of retro fabrics and her practical yet adorable projects. So when I found out she had a book coming out, I preordered it without a second thought. I’m happy to say, I haven’t had any buyer’s remorse. Her book is great!
This project is called Happy Hexagon Trivet. I have really plain trivets, so I thought I’d make a pretty one. But now I don’t want to use this pretty trivet! Maybe I’ll just use it for dainty dishes?
30’s reproduction fabrics are some of my favorite fabrics, and were my first fabric love. *dreamy sigh* Polka dots are also a fabric love of mine. (Can you tell?)
After machine binding my quilts for a few years, I feel like I’ve finally perfected my machine binding. So I’m quite proud of each perfect corner on this trivet. 🙂 But it only took me a few years…
Rainbows: also a favorite of mine. I can’t help it. Blame Rainbow Brite. (I wish I still had that doll. She was awesome. Her sleeves were the best.)
On the back I splurged and used some of my extra favorite fabric, Snippets by American Jane.
And here’s my trivet in the wild enjoying a cup of coffee and a “nutritious” breakfast.
I’m linking up to Amanda Jean’s Finish it Up Friday.
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend! It’s my hubby’s birthday today, so he’s taking the day off. Yah!
